To be fair, I get around in most RPGs just fine. I just have a really lousy sense of direction... especially when you provide an entire open world right off the bat.
How many of us would make it through Dark Souls I wonder. I doubt that many.
Gamers tend to overestimate that game's design and difficulty(I actually find it pretty easy so far... but then again I'm at Anor Londo)
For that, I'd probably never nominate it. Mainly due to my lack of confidence in gamers.
But, as far as Zelda is concerned. I don't think it's possible to get lost if you log your adventure in this topic. Especially OoT and LotP. The games are really short.
When I played through on the 3DS the Water Temple wasn't nearly as difficult as I initially thought it was all those years ago (one time I even had to restart the entire game because I thought I'd missed a key.)

All this Dark Souls talk is lovely, and while I'd love to be forced to play it (never got far :(), it really falls outside the jurisdiction of this topic. But hey, no one's stopping y'all from revitalizing its own thread in the same manner. I'd even be on board with that. ^-^
Anyway, I'm up to Costa finally in FF7. Let me share a few notes of interest:
> Trying to hunker down all this materia on three characters is a hassle. :\ Especially with Double Growth weaponry making its appearance.
> I hate the Junon sequence passionately. Certainly my least favorite chunk of the game so far.
> On the other hand, the ship to Costa has always been in my eyes the moment when the "fun" starts, as here up to the Temple of the Ancients is one string of fantastic sequences after another.
> J-E-N-O-V-A, the boss track, hasn't sounded this good in ages. I've been listening to remixes for a while, and finally hearing the original again after so long is quite awesome. One of the highlights of the game's soundtrack, definitely.
As far as music goes, Aeris theme just goes in and clutches at my soul. Dammit, this project is a great idea, I just wish it had gotten started at a point where I weren't insanely busy, and could actually take part. Like when I retire or something. It's only one of my favourite games...sigh I love those deformed lego men so damn much. Exploring the pre-rendered environments with them had so much charm you could taste it, and certainly more than anything post the PS1 era.
But I'm rambling. People really found emerald easier than Ruby? wow, for me it was the toal reverse. I still haven't gotten around to cleaning up underwater, even with numerous friends telling me how to decipher Aire Tam Storm.
Other than that, he has an incredibly repetitive and predictable pattern, incredibly weak defenses and you can do his million HP in just a couple minutes with a leveled team, especially if you're using multi hits and counters. The time limit is a non issue, because if you aren't beating him in about 10 minutes, you're doing it wrong anyway.
Ruby has WAY higher defenses, (Its basically invincible unless its tentacle is out) has status effects, and randomly kicks party members out and thus gets rid of your heavy hitter or your healer.
I always wondered how people killed the Weapons without walkthroughs.
Or how they figured out how to raise a Golden Chocobo.
ah, i was gonna nominate something, then realized i'm gonna be really busy in july. pick something I dun care about guys, mkay.
omg, i think i remember playing FF7 back in the day and wondering where the hell is yuffie. Did I somehow lose her in the game? why can't I get her back? They managed to have gau come back on a regular basis in 6. They coulda you know, done the same thing in 7.
Alright, the poll is up, everyone. Vote for as many as you'd like I guess. The poll will close on June 28th, which should give everyone enough time to prepare for the event.
When I replayed the game years later though, I had nowhere near enough patience to do it again, so I took the easy route...
God, how many times did I re-do the chocobo race in Gold Saucer for that? I was quite dedicated (understand obsessive-compulsive) back then.
Between the big contenders, Earthbound and SMRPG, I think I'm voting Earthbound.
I'm cool with everything up there but I'll be happy if Earthbound, Paper Mario, or Super Mario RPG win. Especially Earthbound. I am an endless resevoir of pretty much useless knowledge of the Mother series~
I'm not going to participate in this, but I can only encourage everyone in this Thread go with Earthbound. Nintendos most underdeveloped franchise, yet so trippy, crazy and unique it really deserves more acknowledgement. I finished the game two months ago, and you really have no idea what this game is like until you played it yourself. The gameplay isn't amazing or anything, but just the whole representation of this really bizarre world with it's odd creatures really make it stand out amongst Nintendo titles. I used to think Mario already has an odd premise, with the italian Plumber fighting turtles in a land of mushrooms, but that doesn't come close to the crazy shit you see in Earthbound.
Voted Earthbound. Not because I nominated it, because I think it's a unique title. I'm only a few hours into it, but I'm looking forward to playing and discussing the adventure here. From the intro screens alone, I get the impression that the game is going to take me places.
